Stoke Bruerne, Class 1
Welcome to Class 1!
In our class we love to learn through play, both inside and outside the classroom. Every day the children are asked to explore new things and try their best. They are always actively engaged in their learning, a large majority of it through play, alongside focused activities.
Welcome to a new school year, I hope everyone had a wonderful summer holiday. Our topic this term is called ‘Who wears the crown?' Please find the topic letter attached below.
We will be comparing Queen Victoria, Elizabeth I and II, identifying similarities and differences between their ways of life including family customs, housing, food and entertainment. In science, we will be exploring materials and their properties as well as beginning to look at seasonal change. We will develop fine line drawing through portrait work alongside daily creative tasks both inside and outside the classroom.
Our cross curricular learning this term will allow us to apply our skills in a variety of ways. We continue to learn from rich, immersive texts in English such as 'The Enormous Turnip' and work through our Maths No Problem scheme with additional maths challenges supplementing our learning during Continuous Provision.
We are always looking for parents to come in and help, so if you think you would like to spend a bit of time in the classroom with our wonderful children please let us know.
If you have any questions or queries about your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to pop in and see me. My door is always open. Remember to keep checking our class dojo story to see what we've been up to!
